ABOUT

HeatherPattersonImages-92.jpg

I am an emergency physician, photographer and mom of 2 who specializes in lifestyle and medical photography.  My images capture the raw emotions and realities of daily life and celebrate the unique personalities and stories of our lives.  

My current project shares the authentic story of patient experiences and the healthcare team collaboration in Calgary, Alberta during the COVID-19 pandemic.  I hope that this celebration of our shared humanity generates empathy and inspires others to see what we can accomplish when we work together.
